In Wither, teen girls are often kidnapped and sold into polygamous marriages for the sake of bearing children. So image you’ve been thrust into such a situation. How would you react? Would you try to escape, and risk certain death? Would you quietly rebel? Would you fall in love with your husband? What can YOU think up for such a situation?
And in the world of Wither, girls only live until age 20, and guys only live until age 25 … so consider that food for thought as you get writing.
